Get qualified for Social Security Disability Insurance

If you may need to use Social Security Disability (SSD) in the future, then it's important to understand it and the benefits it provides. You need to know exactly what information you have to provide to the Social Security Administration (SSA), too, so that your application can be as thorough and accurate as possible.

Did you know that approximately one out of four Americans will become disabled before they turn 67? That means they won't yet qualify for retirement benefits and will rely on Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) and any other compensation for their injuries that they receive.

What do you need to do to get SSDI?

To get SSDI, you have to meet the right criteria. For example, your benefits may depend on your age and how much you earned in the past. In March 2019, the average monthly payment to workers who are disabled was $1,234.74, which is not taxed.

To obtain SSDI, you need to show that you cannot do work of any kind as a result of your disability. If you can still do some kinds of work, then SSDI may not be something you'll qualify for. Additionally, you need to show that you can't work due to this condition for at least one year. Provide a doctor's recommendation, medical records and any other helpful information about your case and you'll have the best chance of obtaining SSDI.

Our site has more on SSDI and what you should know if you plan to apply. If you're disabled, this can be a helpful benefit that stabilizes your finances.
